Part of me believes that too, but SRL planted himself infront of Duran and Floyd wouldn't do that

Duran would have made Mayweather's 43-0 look like piss.

Roberto Duran
Henry Armstrong

Roberto Duran is weak to Sugar Ray Leonard's boxing using his great footwork. Floyd has at least around the same level of footwork or even better at lower weight classes. Floyd would most likely box to a Unanimous Decision.

The only reason Leonard lost to Duran in their first fight is because Leonard was being hard headed and let his ego get in the way and said he would box Duran flat footed. He didn't use his great footwork which is his greatest asset.

Good post I agree.Give prime Robinson,Duran,Hagler,Sal Sanchez these 43 hand picked fights & they'd tear through the same resume with more KO's.Forget weight classes these guys are atg they'd be great no matter the weightless or era.

Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, possibly Milton McCrory, Jose Napoles, and Donald Curry.

None of whom have fought at 130 all the way up to 154.

What?

No.

The man who got cornered by Augustus, Chavez, De La Hoya, Hatton, Ortiz, Cotto, is not out-boxing Roberto Duran.

He'd even have trouble against a Duran shitting himself like he did in New Orleans.

Seriously, what is with people naming Roberto Duran?

He was 19 years old the last time he made 130 pounds. He left the division at 21-0. He had one notable opponent there, Ernesto Marcel who certainly is good/great, but for Marcel it was his first fight above featherweight, the fourth highest he would weigh in his career, and also before his peak. He fought no one else of any relevance. You think a he could keep weight without being drained at 130 for enough years to match Floyd's resume at that weight? Than to gradually move up at the pace Floyd did, not the pace that he did?

Even if you picked the supreme best version of him from each weight class, do you really think a 19 year old novice Duran would go through Genaro, Manfredy, Corrales, C. Hernandez, and Chavez undefeated? Highly doubtful, in my opinion. And that's just Mayweathers' run @ super feather.

That's no knock on Duran. I clearly view him as the much better ATG than Mayweather, that's not in question. More or less just showing the questionable nature of this thread.

So you are saying these are fighters who would trouble Duran?
